    ESB: Correct Jumpsuit Dye color

    What is the correct dye for ESB Jumpsuit color? I have a jumsuit that is more gray than blue and I want to get closer to the correct shade. What dye brand and color is everyone using? I need to re-color my side pouches as well as they are off-white.

    Thank you,

    Ted

    RIT Evening Blue or DYLON China Blue for ESB I believe

    After it's weathered it'll look more gray and faded. You might want to pull it out of the dye a little earlier than recommended to make it look faded to start with

    Also make sure the fabric doesn't have permanent presstreatment applied. Use the RIT dye permanent press fabric pre-treatment prior to dying it to be safe. That way the dye will set evenly and the correct color

    i used RIT evening blue and left it in the dyebath for a little under 25 minutes. Did it in my kitchen sink. Looked perfect. i weathered it by misting flat black spray paint on it as that seemed to have the most accurate look.

    Can't find RIT evening blue anywhere. I've found three different RIT blue dyes but not "Evening". "Dylon" is a brand I've not founf in any color.
